Speaker: Stuart McPhee
In this session Stuart will cover important items that have stood the test of time and that are essential for long term consistently profitable trading. Some of them are obvious but generally traders don't know how to address them. For example, despite the importance of having the right mindset and managing risk, you still need a simple and robust trading strategy allowing you to consistently enter high probability trading opportunities. However many traders trade randomly - they will look for trading opportunities indiscriminately without any process or methodology. With your strategy, Stuart will also address the number one problem traders make with their time frame selection. Learn how to approach your trading with a disciplined and professional level mindset.
Speaker: Tom Hougaard
Tom has, after many years in the trading trenches, come to the absolute conviction that trading is all about mind-set. Trading successfully goes against our fundamental instincts. Human nature says ride our losses. Human nature will work against us when we have a profitable position. When you are a good trader, everything you do hurts. It hurts to buy the first top of the day or sell short the first low of the day. This talk will attempt in a short 60 minutes to make you consider the implications of having the right mindset and how to acquire the right mindset to trade every day. The talk will explore the tools available to traders, including those that Tom uses.
Tom has given thousands and thousands of talks on technical analysis, talked about Gann, Fibonacci, Volume Analysis, seasonal tendencies, day-trading, swing trading, momentum trading, Divergence Trading, Scalping, Scaling in and out, pattern analysis, Price Action, trendlines, tramlines, channels - and the list goes on and on. If profitable trading was all about techniques, then the money goes to the person with the biggest trading library.
The new ESMA rules require brokers to state how big a percentage of their clients are profitable. The percentage of losing traders is in the 80% region. We can safely assume that those 80% are normal human beings - well mannered and well seasoned in technical analysis and probably also of sound mind and body. Is it not then safe to conclude that technical analysis and normal behaviour does not translate into profits? This 60 minute talk will highlight the evidence to support the theory that being "normal" is fatal for the wallet. .

Panel: Siam Kidd, Anthony Cheung, Jason Graystone and Adam Harris
For what is likely to be the last time, the topic for the London Forex Show Lunchtime Summit is Brexit – taking place just a few short weeks after the event and likely to offer some unprecedented trading opportunities. Any major political change around the world creates uncertainty in the early stages, and uncertainty leads to volatility, which is where you, the trader, can profit. The panel will discuss how best traders can prepare, positioning yourself for maximum profit-taking and looking at where the most reliable trading information can be found. Attend this discussion, bring questions of your own, and get ready to trade Brexit.
